Adoption of Geometric Properties to Detect Herniated Spinal Disc of Human
Keywords:Herniated spinal, Geometric properties, and MRI.
Image analysis and processing is useful in the medical images field, especially with the use of magnetic resonance images (MRI). In this research, MRI of the human's spine was analysis and processed to identify and detect the herniated spinal Disc, or the probability of occurrence in the future. Lumbar and sacrum regions have been applied by the system. The system includes three phases, the first is to identify the lumbar and sacrum regions second are the geometric properties measuring, and finally to detect the presence or probability of herniated to occur in the future.
